ALDE Party press release

Speaking at a meeting in Cornwall in his constituency today, European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party President Sir Graham Watson MEP commented on the campaign by Romania's PDL, the party of President Basescu, to persuade voters not to vote in the forthcoming impeachment referendum:

"In a democracy, political parties should always encourage people to fulfil their civic duty by taking part in plebsicites.

Since Commission President Barroso and Romania's President Basescu insisted on a 50% turnout to validate the referendum, which goes beyond normal democratic practice and the recommendations of the Council of Europe, they should insist a fair expression of public opinion in this referendum.

If they do not, what kind of democrats are they?"
